He’s been getting worse and worse since his wife passed away.

Patrick Duffy, the actor who played Bobby Ewing, the most beloved character from the American television series Dallas, has lost any resemblance to his former self in recent years. He appeared to have aged nearly instantaneously after the torments of the previous years.

Despite the fact that the last episode of Dallas was filmed more than 25 years ago, Patrick Duffy, the actor who played Bobby Ewing, has remained in the hearts of fans, and the public responds warmly whenever he makes an appearance.

He was arguably the most popular performer on the American show, not just because of his appearance but also because of the sweetness of his character.

Patrick Duffy recently attended the premiere of the film “Warning shot” at a theater in Beverly Hills, California, in the United States. The actor was accompanied at the ceremony by Linda Gray (77), a fellow cast member from the set of Dallas who is best known for her role as Sue Ellen.

The pain he felt after his wife passed away has left a deep mark on the 69-year-old actor’s face. Patrick Duffy lost a large amount of weight and completely transformed into an old man.

Fans were surprised by the actor’s presence, but he greeted them with a pleasant smile and signed autographs for them, proving that his endearing demeanor has not faded with the time that has passed.

Patrick Duffy and Carlyn Rosser, a former dancer who was ten years his senior, have been married since 1974. Padraig Terence and Connor Frederick were their two children, and they have four grandkids.

Despite speculations circulating in the worldwide press that his wife is in serious condition, the actor has stayed silent and has retired from public life for the time being.

The truth, however, has been disclosed, and it turns out that Carlyn Rosser passed away in early 2017 and was buried privately by her family. A few months later, Patrick Duffy shared to his Twitter followers the anguish he was experiencing at the time:

“On this day six months ago, my heart stopped beating.  She made sure I kept breathing because she wanted me to.  I appreciate all of your kindness and care for me.”  Just four years before the event, the actor had fought and won his battle against a dreadful condition called skin cancer.

Patrick Duffy learned in 1986, while working on the set of the television show Dallas, that his parents, Marie and Terence Duffy, had been murdered on the premises of the bar they owned in Montana.

Kenneth Miller and Sean Wentz, both teenagers, were proven to be responsible for the armed robbery and were apprehended as soon as they were discovered.

They were sentenced to 180 years in prison for their crimes, although Miller was released the following year because Wentz claimed he was the gunman and accepted responsibility for the act.
